In response to our segment in our premiere on food labeling, POM Wonderful sent us a refrigerator full of juice and an elegantly worded letter implying what we can do with it.

You know, that complaining really works. Years ago I wrote to GE and complained about the unavailability of rechargeable batteries. They sent me a box of them. I complained to Ben and Jerry's about a lack of marshmallow in their Phish Food. They sent me a bunch of coupons for free ice cream. I wrote to Kansas City Steaks about the poor quality of the meat I had received. Two whole boxes of really beautiful steaks.Nobody wrote me a note like Pom did, though.
I just watched this, I manage a produce department and have to deal with POM sales rep's all the time.
Telling you right now if I see any of those "may contain dogs" stickers on those juices I'm fucking leaving them there. POM reps are smug annoying little fucks.
Pom is owned by Stuart Resnick and his wife (shown in the first clip touting Pom juice), and he essentially owns 80% of the water in California, and uses it to grow almonds for export: in spite of taking a gallon of water to grow a single almond, it is the most lucrative cash crop that can be grown there. California doesn't have droughts, it has a water monopoly.
There actually have been many studies that show the many benefits of pomegranates, including decreasing prostate cancer. The reason they can't call their research "definitive" in regards to the effect on long-term illnesses is the fact that natural products have a much harder time with the FDA, which favors chemicals and the billion dollar pharmaceutical industry. Studies for natural products get barely any government funding, and research on animals (even though it's only 10% effective) also gets more government grants. It's not a fair system, and I wouldn't put all my trust in the FDA by any means. I'd treat POM's claims as equal as any other claim. The FDA isn't the end-all to food/supplement/drug safety....after all, tons and tons and TONS of drugs that were approved by the FDA went on to kill lots of people before being taken off the market. We should give the benefit of acknowledgement/consideration to any food/nutrient/supplement/etc that has shown some evidence of helping people/animals, even if it's minimal. The lady from POM wasn't pulling that fact out of her ass - many, many people who specialize in nutrition and health have said the same thing about pomegranate.

Just for the record: I like you and your show very much; I watch it on YouTube because I don't want to spend extra for HBO. You make me laugh and think which I find an excellent combination. I drink POM every day in a smoothie because I like the taste and it does have the usual health benefits of any fruit juice. I like their ads with the dragon and archers; very creative and entertaining. And, as a bonus, the bottles make adorable snowmen which I use to package various treats as Christmas gifts. I tend to binge watch your episodes (cheers to autoplay) and saw this one after a fan "mail" update. 1. Your looks are not repulsive. 2. The format of a deep look at one subject is great. 3. I would be interested to see if you could get thru one episode without the seemingly obligatory F-Bomb. I am a Mormon Democrat living in Utah. You do the math. Thanks for a great product.
What they’re basically saying is: Dear John Oliver, f*ck you. Here’s s crate off our product, go shove it up you’re a*s.
I think this is the first time in the history of the world than anyone has outwitted John Oliver. It’s like someone out manipulating Petyr Baelish, or out thinking Tyrion Lannister
Ayyyy a completely reasonable response to being made fun of by John Oliver. I can see the pr people at Murray Energy now..."should we send them a joking response that makes our company look like it cares? Nah. Lawsuit"
if humiliating and making fun of a product gets you tons of the product let me just say: Tesla electric suvs are terrible cars which can barely run for 3 minutes before having to get recharged, endless pools are horrific exercise things and are way too expensive and take up too much space, Hamilton tickets are worthless pieces of sh*t that at best get you a seat in the very back...
